What Our Guests Have Been Saying…
Our second visit to North Berwick and Martin’s apartment. We were enjoying ourselves so much we asked to stay an extra night! Dinner in Osteria is highly recommended. Thanks again Martin for your thoughtful touches to the apartment.
A happy place to be
Beautiful apartment - immaculately clean and extremely well appointed. Location perfect for the stunning beach and lovely shops & restaurants that North Berwick has to offer (literally round the corner!). Martin is a lovely host and really made us feel happy and welcome. We wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend the property. Superb.
A very well equipped, comfortable and light apartment that is really well located
The apartment couldn't haven't been nicer. It was a perfect size for a couple with a dog and was full of mod cons which made the stay all the more comfy. Well placed just a street behind the sea front and a few minutes to the town's shops and restaurants. It is obviously well looked after and the host Martin was very welcoming, making himself available to answer questions and make suggestions. Parking looked like it might be tricky at first but in reality if you know where to park there is no issue - and Martin gave us plenty of good advice. And North Berwick is a little gem of a place. So a lovely stay all round.
What a wonderful place to stay. Spotless, so well equipped . A beautiful home from home. Loved it!
This really is the best equipped apartment I have ever stayed in! What a beautiful relaxing place to stay. The owner Martin really has thought of everything. It is ideally situated very close to the beach and to some lovely eateries in North Berwick. The welcome pack on arrival was such a nice start to our break and included lots of goodies including a bottle of wine ready chilled for us. What more could you ask for. We will most definitely return.
Fantastic apartment in amazing location
The apartment is even better in real life than it is in the description and photos! It is extremely clean and supplied with all the things you will ever need for a relaxing holiday. Martin, the owner, was courteous and attentive in his contact before we got to North Berwick and greeted us at the apartment when we arived, spending some time with us explaining how things worked. There was a very generous hamper, a bunch of flowers and some fridge essentials waiting for us in the apartment. The bed was probably the most comfortable one we have ever slept in! The apartment is literally round the corner from the sea and beach and equally close to some amazing shops (try the baker's!!), cafes and restaurants. The sofa bed got used when our friend, who lives half an hour's drive away, came for a sleep-over. Martin had prepared bedding for her and she found the bed very comfortable and cosy. We would all highly recommend this apartment!
This is a lovely, clean, and bright apartment, with anything you could ever need. These included a dishwasher, coffee machine, utensils for eating corn on the cob, and a carbon monoxide alarm! Martin seems to have thought of everything and went above and beyond to be helpful and welcoming throughout our stay. I can't recommend this apartment enough. The location is perfect for access to shops or the beach.
Great, well equipped apartment
We had a great time in North Berwick. The property was well kept, clean and had everything you could possibly need for a break away. The owner Martin really had thought of everything and a fab welcome pack was left for us. It was in a great location close to all local amenities, great for exploring the area. We would definitely try to stay here again when visiting the area. Thanks again to Martin.
A great location, a great apartment with everything you would need
Martin's hospitality and information is second to none. He explained how everything worked in the apartment and left us a welcome pack which was lovely. But we also found he had provided those little things that other apartments forget: sachets of sauces, kitchen roll, cling film, foil, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, plenty of tea towels and cloths and even a cool down pad for my hair straighteners, little sewing kit, shampoo and body wash. We couldn't have wished for more inside the apartment. Martin also saved us a parking space right outside the apartment which was great, but this is not a permanent parking spot and the parking restrictions (although relaxed at the time we were there) may cause parking problems in the future. This would not stop us returning though. There are plenty of places to eat. We tried The Grange (steakhouse), Zitto's (Italian) and the local pub all of which are literally around the corner. There is also a small Nisa and Coop around the corner but there is an Aldi and Tesco a little further out of town. You can catch a train to Edinburgh which only takes 30 minutes and Dunbar is only a short drive away. Tantallon castle is on the way and well worth a look, especially as you get a fantastic view of Bass Rock from there. And sunrise on the beach is fantastic! Thanks Martin
Our stay in North Berwick was as good as we could have hoped for and the apartment played a big part in that. It is comfortable and well located. Martin's friendly welcome included saving us space outside to park, help in offloading and a full tutorial on all of the equipment in the apartment. This instruction was very useful as there is a lot of techie kit, most of which we used at some time during our week there. Martin's welcome pack of goodies was also very much appreciated, with the very nice bottle of wine going down especially well. The location is great for good eating places, in fact we had three lovely dinners within 150 yards of the front door, in Cucina Amore, Signals and Zitto. We would highly recommend this apartment - it has everything you could ever need, for however long you might stay.
Dejlig lille lejlighed med en super beliggenhed og en helt unik service og gæstfrihed fra ejers side
Vi var 2 voksne og 2 store børn afsted. Lejligheden ligger 30 m fra stand og der er gode restauranter lige rundt om hjørnet, hvor også den lokale købmand ligger. Der er alt hvad man har brug for i lejligheden, som er hyggelig, ren og pæn. Martin er yderst gæstfri og holder jævnlig kontakt. Vi ankom meget sent, men der var ingen problemer i det. Tvært imod var der købt lidt snack, vin, øl, sodavand,mælk, brød,smør og marmelade som stod klar til os ved ankomst. Helt fantastisk 😀 Kan helt klart anbefales og kommer gerne igen Translation: Lovely little apartment with a superb location and a unique service and hospitality from the owners We were 2 adults and 2 grown children. The apartment is 30 m from the beach and there are good restaurants just around the corner, where also the local grocery store is located. There is everything that you need in the apartment, which is nice, clean and tidy. Martin is extremely hospitable and keeps regular contact. We arrived very late, but there were no problems with this. On the contrary, a little snack, wine, beer, soda, milk, bread, butter and jam was bought ready for us on arrival. Absolutely amazing 😀 Can definitely be recommended and will be happy to stay again
Lovely place to stay for the week. Nice and cosy whilst there was some interesting weather outside! Thank you to Martin for supplying everything we could possibly need and for being so friendly and accommodating.
We have had a wonderful time here in North Berwick! We immediately felt at home in the apartment, which is lovely - a real home from home! Martin was great, very helpful and accommodating. We had everything we could possibly need here, you can tell a lot of thought and care has been put into the making of the apartment. Our time spent here has been lovely and relaxing - exactly what we needed, we will most definitely be back to East Bay Apartment and will be recommending to family & friends! Thanks for a great stay! 🙂 On a side note if you don’t go to the Lobster Shack/Rocketeer you are missing a treat!
Wow! What a little gem!
Hidden away on pretty street is this little find! Upon arrival we were greeted by Martin who was incredibly helpful, reserving a parking space directly outside and providing a warm welcome. Once inside the apartment we were not disappointed, the apartment is exactly as advertised and so very clean. We had a welcome pack that included bread, cereal, chocolates and wine!!! (WOW) as Martin showed us around the apartment it was clear that a lot of care had been taken when putting the final touches in, there is everything you could possibly need and more! It was clear that should we have any problems we could call on Martin with out hesitation, he was brilliant and checked in on us via text occasionally which was very well received. We stayed at the apartments for 6 nights and had a wonderful time! Myself, my partner our 25yr old daughter and her partner felt right at home in the apartment and despite there being four adults the apartment still felt spacious! It is beautifully decorated and the beds are incredibly comfy, the sofa bed actually has a memory foam topper! The location of the apartment is perfect, literally around the corner from the seafront and a 2 minute stroll into the heart of North Berwick where the cafes and restaurants are. During our stay we ate out a few times, but there is a tesco 5 minutes away should you chose to stay in and enjoy the apartment as we did occasionally. If you decide to eat out you should certainly try the lobster shack located on the harbour or the rocketeer by the seabird centre both have the same menu and stock and are really wonderful! We would also recommend Signals Bistro, 2 minutes away from the apartment in the centre of town. The menu is lovely and the quality of food is second to none! There are loads of places to go for a meal or a coffee and a cake, each of them great and welcoming! We throughly enjoyed our time in North Berwick made better by the high standards of our apartment. It was a real home from home, we highly recommend staying here! You will not be disappointed!
A great little flat, it feels lovely light and spacious. Martin has been really helpful and thoughtful throughout our stay. The flat has been very well thought out with a great eye for detail, providing all the small necessities and going above and beyond. Would recommend to friends & family. Thank you once again.
